Abstract

With the attention now being given to molecular genetic analysis of cariogenic microorganisms, the role of host genes in influencing susceptibility to caries should not be forgotten. Increasing knowledge in this field will lead to identification of individuals at particular risk of dental decay and will help in planning rational strategies for management and prevention.
